Our acetylene plants are entirely designed and manufactured at our factory in New Delhi (India). Our engineers have high level of expertise in designing and manufacturing. Each component is manufactured immaculately and is tested thoroughly before being assembled. After assembly, each unit is checked for its performance and is improved if its performance is not up to the mark. Customers can stay assured of the quality. We incorporate the latest features in the plant usually not found in other plants available in the market. Fully automated, it can be easily operated by an operator requiring only half an hour of instruction.
How Acetylene is Produced?
Acetylene is generated by reacting Calcium Chloride with Water. The reaction also produces calcium hydroxide and heat.
CaC2 + 2H2O = Ca (OH) 2 + C2H2 Delta H = – 32.5 kcal
Calcium Carbide is moved into hoppers of acetylene Generator and by using carbide feed mechanism rated amount of carbide is reacted with water. As a result, acetylene is produced immediately because the reaction is instantaneous. Cooling of acetylene gas causes condensation of water molecules which are eliminated using Acetylene Drier. Next, the dry acetylene is fed into an acetylene purifier where it reacts with regenerative type purifying mass for removal of impurities like H2S and Phosgene. Ammonia scrubber is used for eliminating of ammonia gas. Finally, acetylene is compressed, filtered & dried with Acetylene filters & driers and then filled into cylinders that contain Porus Monolithic Mass and acetone.
Working Process of Acetylene Plant
Every process of acetylene plant is triggered by pneumatically controlled valves and assisted by highly sensitive sensors which are integrated with the temperature control instruments. Then, inlet valves or residue drain valve are opened. Two hydraulic pumps are used for opening and closing the supply of calcium carbide, which is fed into the generator by screw feed conveyors. The screw feed mechanism and the agitator is run by flame-proof motors and fittings. Entire operation of the plant is well-coordinated to deliver efficient functioning. Any failure is in function is signaled visually or audibly when the alarm is rung.
High quality flame proof lights and electrical fittings complying with IS2148-68 (Group II) or BSS-229 are used in the manufacturing of acetylene gas plant. And, acetylene cylinders must also meet 7312: 1974 or ICC: 8 specifications. Safety is a priority with while designing, fabricating and manufacturing of the plant. High pressure reverse flow check valves, safety valves, flash back arrestors and the whole gauging is used for protection of personnel and equipment.
